3. After the door had a fresh coat on it & it was all cleaned up we went to add the shelving & the light.
4. The light was a pendant we already had lying around the house & we built the pipe fixture that the light is connected too. To build the DIY industrial pendant holder we used a galvanized pipe, a galvanized base plate, & a 90 degree galvanized elbow. We simply attached the
pipes together & mounted the base plate to the door.
5. We then strung the pendant light through the pipe & through a holein the door in the baseplate & we had a light mounted to the door!6. The shelves are antique boards found at the same thrift shop as thedoor cut to size to fit the door. We mounted them to some simple metal shelf brackets on the door.
7. From here we just leaned our door shelf against the wall in thebathroom, but you could mount it to the wall or add feet for added security.
By adding baskets, towels, & a few accessories, the door fits right into our bathroom. The diy door shelf has added so much storage to our bathroom & I love the character it adds as well! What do you think of our new door shelf? Have you built something like this before? Let me know what you think of it in the comments below, find me on Facebook, or chat with me on Instagram!

I am proud to be a 3Msponsored blogger, and, as part of myresponsibilities, I get the opportunity to evaluate ScotchBlue™ Painter’sTape. Opinions are my own and additional products used in the projectwere selected by me.I used ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Delicate Surfaces with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector and was happy with the results, however the proper tape to use for this surface is ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Multi-Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector”.

This is so cool! My mum did the same with an old door and since then I am on the hunt for an old door, so I can create my own shelf! 🙂
Very cute – a picture of the back of the door would be helpful – just for reference of how the fixture looks and if you anchored down the light wire .

Such a cute idea, I have an old 4 paned window that needs to be turned into a coffee table. Love your blog, full of home inspiration!
